Marginalised Histories Through Live Cinema

Throughout the history of the moving image, the cinema screen has provided a space where the marginalised, the alternative and the forgotten can be represented. The role of the cinema in traversing and transgressing traditional notions of colour, creed, sexuality and gender has been further embellished through the concept of "live cinema", or taking cinema beyond the black box of the movie theater. This session will explore the efforts of live cinema in re-imagining and developing the nature and possibilities of film exhibition in a post-cinematic age and examine how filmmakers, artists and curators can continue to work together to maintain and develop landscape of cinema as a site for alternative histories.
